Flea Beetle Views

beetles on spurge
A well chewed and dying knapweed plant with many flea beetles on it.

This plant was just black with beetles however, I bumped into a grass stem that hit the plant and scared them.  As you can see by the beetles in the air, most of them hopped off just as I took the photo.....  :^)

The dead and dying plants are black with flea beetles!
